Dex on gaming

Like being a Jedi, being a gamer runs in my family. Dex is an avid gamer, and we spent some time this week to over how he perceives gaming, what he likes about the gaming universe, where he sees issues, what his biggest pet peeves are in gaming, and finally, we’ll take a look at where and what he’s playing. The interview has been lightly edited for clarity:

Do you consider yourself a gamer? Why?
Yes, because I play video games 

What makes someone a gamer in your opinion?

If you play video games (not like casual games, not Animal Crossing or Candy Crush)….has to be a “serious game.”

How long have you been playing games? What platform did you start out on?
Since I was 4 and started playing Minecraft. It was on my dad’s Android tablet.

What do you like about gaming?
I like it because it helps me calm down and just forget everything on like a bad day. It’s just to sit down and unwind from a bad day.

What annoys you about gaming?

Raging like when a noob kills you in Fortnite when you just wasted your gold on an exotic weapon. That may or may not have just happened to me

Also, when fun exploits are patched. I enjoy showing them off to my friends.

What platforms does do play on?
While I used to play on my phone, I’ve moved completely over to playing on the Switch

Games

Breath of the wild

  1. What’s your overall impression of it?
    It’s a very amazing game, it’s so beautiful, I love the graphics!
  2. How long have you played it?
    Coming up on two years now. I’ve beat everything on regular difficulty.
  3. How long did it take you to complete the main scenario?
    In normal mode, it took me just over a year to complete.
  4. Are you currently playing it, and if so, what’chu doing?
    No, I’ve completely got through everything on normal mode.
  5. What do you like about it?
    I really like the fact that it’s non-linear, that is something I really like
  6. What’s a pet peeve that about it that drives you wild?

There’s nothing left to do once you do the main sequence, and all the shrines and side quests are done, there’s not really anything left to do at that point.

Fortnite

  1. What’s your overall impression of it?
    It’s very fun to play. I like all the different game modes.
  2. How long have you played it?
    I’ve been playing it for just over month.
  3. Are you currently playing it, and if so, what’chu doing?
    I really like the solo mode, I also really like the creative mode which lets me do something I might not do in a normal mode.
  4. Who do you play with usually?
    Myself or a friend from school
  5. What do you like about it?
    I like seeing what’s going on for each season, that keeps the game fresh. I like seeing the game shop reset at six every night, that keeps me coming back.
  6. What’s a pet peeve that about it that drives you wild?

I don’t like in creative mode where they limit the game inventory, and not play with everything that’s in the game.

Also, in creative mode, if you hover something, it automatically pulls out your Fortnite phone, which makes me have to put it right back in.

In the regular game, the amount of Vbucks they want for something is all too expensive for how much have to spend to get something.
